I Am a Night Owl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 62,251 People

    But only when I don't have to work in the

    morning. I love the night; all is quiet except for my music and my thoughts. I don't have to worry about interruptions, I don't have to worry about deadlines and chores, all I have to worry about is the coming morning sun and the noise of the day, and even then why bother...

    I've always preferred the night.

    I've worked years at a time doing night shift. I only stopped because I realise it's unhealthy to avoid the sun to that extent. Ah to be young and ignorant though.

    You will catch me up at random hours of the

    night if I don't take my night medication on time.

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    4:30 in the morning, exhausted

    and laying in bed, meanwhile still can't sleep - and I have to wake up early to go out to breakfast. Sigh.

    I want to stay up but I know I can't

    because I'm a student and students must go to school in the daytime. I want a total nightlife, go walking through town, etc. everything seems to be more eye catching at night.

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    Urgh.. What's worse than staying up all

    night; is the fact that you struggle and fight just to fall asleep, only to toss and turn for the next 4/5 hours and wake up at the tiniest noise!! and then not being able to get back to sleep.... Hmm :/ stupid brain!!!!

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    Almost 3:30 and I'm awake.

    I remembered that I have a pillow mist, made to help with sleeping. Let's see if that works tonight. (I also have one for stress).

    It's that kind of night

    where I'm tired, but I don't want to sleep! But I'm too tired to actually do anything. Sigh! This is almost every night for me. either this, or I just can't sleep cause I'm not tired lol. Never a normal night!

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    For some reason, I spend all evening wasting

    time online, then I decide midnight is a good time to start cleaning the house. I should really just go to sleep
